|CMD - Mr. A K Hazarika' s message to ONGCians|
01 February, 2011
My Dear ONGCians,
The Government of India has entrusted the additional charge of Chairman & Managing Director, ONGC and Director (Exploration), ONGC to me from February 1, 2011 and I feel humbled by this great honour. The charge is temporary; the responsibility onerous.
The growth trajectory in Mr RS Sharma's tenure was astounding. We all need to put in our best efforts to continue with this legacy of high performance and excellent results year after year.
Mr RS Sharma led ONGC from the front. Through consensus and collective decision making, he built a wonderful team on the bedrock of high performance.
He was the go-to person for many of you and I wish to take this legacy forward with all your confidence and trust.
We have seen unprecedented growth and industry leading achievements in our company that kept us at the forefront. A combination of introduction of newer technologies and our steadfast efforts opened up difficult to reach areas.
CMD - Mr. A K Hazarika'
The ONGC Board will now have to draw on their decades of experience and expertise to come up to the expectations of the industry and nation. With your support, we will uphold the tradition of our great organisation.
While we can take pride in our past laurels, we have to meet our physical and fiscal targets. This is also the time when the world will be watching us, as the Follow-on Public Offer has been announced.
We are at a juncture where monumental development projects have been launched; enormous investments have started yielding results that is apparent from the impressive financial results.
My primary aim shall be to keep our Organisation's growth momentum going and I look forward to receiving support from all of you in this endeavour.
We have to ensure a productive year ahead as we continue to innovate and execute our exploration and production strategies that will enable growth throughout the industry.
I promise to deliver through Team-Effort and wish all of you the very best.
